[ Sold] [ FS - NSW ] 1970 Type 3 Squareback
Regretful sale of my 1970 VW Type 3 Squareback Automatic due to growing family and minimal time for restoration.
Very good starting point for someone looking to do a restoration project as engine and gearbox are in good nick. Steering is also very true and the
body is pretty straight with only a few minor blemishes.
Car has not been registered since Feb 2015 in South Australia.
1600 engine with fully reconditioned automatic gearbox with less than 50hrs use. Both never missed a beat when using on a regular basis as my weekend
Exterior needs a bit of work. Unfortunately the previous owner did an average paint job over the factory colour, comes up nice with a good buff. Minor
rust around the roof channel. Only major blemish is the front drivers fender has a decent bump that would need panel work or replaced (see picture).
Also the driver floor pan has a few small holes in it which would need to be replaced to have it passed for road worthy. Pretty much brand new tyres
as they were purchased a short time before I stopped driving the car.
The interior needs a bit of work. Both front seats need to be reupholstered and mechanisms to slide and recline need to be fixed. Back seat is in good
nick and fully functioning. The roof needs relining, doors and back need new side panels.
Speedo needs fixing. Hand brake cable need to be fixed.
Comes with a box of extra bits and pieces including the original steering wheel. Happy to go through and take pics for genuine buyer.
Have documentation of everything that has been done to the car by GHR Motors in Adelaide, can provide on request to genuine buyer.
